Digital Printing Services

Low Start-up Costs, Fast Turnaround Times And High-quality Results.

Digitally printed packaging offers an impressive finish on different materials for minimal cost, making it ideal for small runs of packaging or sample packaging.

Customise Your Packaging with Digital Printing

Digital printing services offer an inexpensive yet effective way to enhance your packaging and create a connection with your target audience. It can help you promote your products online or on the shelves of brick-and-mortar stores — getting personalised packaging doesn’t need to cost the Earth.

Opting for digitally printed boxes or box sleeves offers fast turnaround times and unrivalled flexibility. You can adjust your packaging design for fresh runs of packaging at a moment’s notice, something that would otherwise be costly and time-consuming if you were using traditional printing methods.

Typically, there are no upfront costs for set-up or origination, allowing small quantities of printed packaging to be produced very cost-effectively.

How Does Digital Printing Work?

Digital printing involves transferring a digital file (e.g. a JPEG or PDF file) directly to a printer. Simply put, your designs can be applied to various kinds of packaging quickly and easily.

It’s a faster and more straightforward process compared to offset printing techniques like flexographic, lithographic or silk screen printing — these print methods are better for larger printing jobs that require a premium finish. 

The trade-off with digital printing is that there are certain limitations on the size of the printed packaging and the overall image quality. 

As packaging experts with over 40 years in the industry, we can advise you on the best option for your business.

What Materials Can Be Digitally Printed?

Numerous materials can be digitally printed, making it a versatile technique that can be applied to a range of products or packaging:

As a certified carbon neutral company, we print all of our packaging using water or vegetable-based inks. They offer the same performance and vibrant finish with the benefit of being more eco-friendly than traditional, chemical-based inks.

Should You Use Digital Printing for Your Packaging?

Our digital printing service is fast, cost-effective and easy to use. It’s the best printing process for small packaging runs — ideal if you need to produce and evaluate multiple test runs or experiment with your designs. We’ve helped start-ups, established retail businesses and marketing agencies for large-scale organisations create the perfect packaging, allowing them to bring their products to market quickly and within budget.

More About The Process of Digital Printing

This method of printing uses a basic CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) four-colour process printing technique, but with the addition of “lighter” versions of these four colours. This gives a much larger range of visible colours that can be produced. We can also print white ink to create eye-catching effects and imagery onto clear or coloured materials. We can print directly onto thicker, heavier substrates (up to approximately 25mm thickness) using UV inks that are instantly cured under UV lamps.

Expert packaging suppliers for over 40 years, with an emphasis on plastic-free packaging

In the late 1970s, two friends and colleagues, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton saw a gap in the market for a different type of packaging supplier. At the time, other businesses were selling custom made boxes and stocking packaging consumables, but Tim and Stewart wanted to offer more than that. They wanted to give their clients additional services, such as warehouse storage and the ability to have their packaging delivered as and when it was required. Packaging Supplies was established, and the rest is history.
